Disney Developing Live Action Mulan

Amy always hated the boardroom. It had the smell of cheap air freshener mixed with expensive furniture, the only trace of the minimum wage cleaners who worked tirelessly through the night so she could work tired during the da...

Live-action Beauty and the Beast has a release date

If Cinderella is anything to go by, Disney has made a good decision in greenlighting live-action adaptations of its own animated classics. Perhaps Cinderella's box office success over the weekend spurred the company to make a...

Goetz brothers set to direct Martyr remake

Martyrs may still be one of the more disturbing films I've ever seen, and it's even harder to decide if I liked it or not. A US remake of the film has been kicking around since the movie debuted in 2008, but it seemed pr...

David Fincher and Gillian Flynn teaming up to remake Strangers on a Train
by Alec Kubas-Meyer

Here's something pretty cool: David Fincher is directing a remake of Alfred Hitchcock's Strangers on a Train. It is being written by Gone Girl novelist/screenwriter Gillian Flynn. Ben Affleck is involved too.

Here's something kind of weird: It's not being called Strangers on a Train. In fact, it doesn't take place on a train at all. It takes place on a plane. Well, two planes, actually. So, it's Strangers on a Plane, which sounds dumb as hell. Fortunately, it's not actually called that (they're just going with Strangers), but it still sounds like an idea that could easily become dumb as hell. 

That said, I'm also totally fascinated by the idea. I don't actually understand how it's going to work, and the little tidbits given in the Deadline story pose more questions than they answer, but I'm already sold. I like remakes that adapt source material to the modern age, and while people still do use trains in 2015, I'm not going to question this particular creative team without a whole lot more information. They proved themselves with Gone Girl, and Fincher's proved himself numerous times before. If anyone is going to do justice to Hitchcock's work, I think it'll be them.

Tony Jaa leaves kickboxer to be replaced by Van Damme

Reboots are better when the aging star of the original show up. It's  fact. I think. Maybe not. However, the Kickboxer reboot is definitely made better by he fact that Jean-Claude Van Damme will be showing up in it....

Review: Dracula Untold photo
Review: Dracula Untold
by Matthew Razak

Everyone listen. I'm going to pretty much surprise the crap out of you because by writing the next sentence I'm surprising the crap out of myself. I enjoyed Dracula Untold. I know. You've probably just decided that maybe you don't want to trust my opinion anymore, but hear me out. 

Dracula Untold is a Universal monster movie. You know those old classics from back in the day that starred Dracula and the Wolfman and the Mummy. In fact they're making an entire film universe for those guys to star in. The point is that those movies were meant to be fun and kind of ridiculous and that is exactly what Dracula Untold is despite its many flaws.

We're getting another I Know What You Did Last Summer

I Know What You Did Last Seventeen Years Ago was a big hit when it first arrived in 1997 during Kevin Williamson's golden age where he wrote scripts for films like Scream and The Faculty. And as such, it did well enough to ge...

'Dumbo' is getting a live-action remake for some reason

Is Dumbo big with the kids these days? Did I fall into some sort of Rip Van Winkle-type cryo-sleep and wake up in a world where movies starring CG animals are well done and Dumbo, of all things, desperately warrants a live-ac...

WarGames does the director and writer thing for almost real this time

Review: Godzilla photo
Review: Godzilla
by Matthew Razak

When that first roar hits you know they did this thing right. There's a chill that will go down your spine if you're a Godzilla fan. As he moves you'll wonder at how they found that perfect balance between rubber suit and actual monster. This is Godzilla.

Godzilla's previous American outing was a sin against all things good in the world, but this one, this one knows what's up. Well, at least when it comes to giant monsters knocking the sh*t out of each other in the middle of cities. That's what really matters, right?

There's plenty to be said about the new film, and it isn't all positive, but in the crucial aspects -- the ones that have always made Godzilla fun -- it succeeds.

Kickboxer getting remade with kickass dudes
